is it possible to add a variable to a filter?

i have a filter and i want to have a 'date picker' as a variable for anyone who wants to change the date range the filter is for, however this dashboard is for read only, no one will be logged in.. is this possible?

Hello Thomas,


  • Can you clarify a bit more what this date range is based off of? 
  • The dashboard would be read only yet you would like users to be able to specify a date range correct?
  • If you can provide the above I create the filter on my end and provide you the configuration steps.

are you able to assist any further? :)

There is a field 'landline' which i have a filter set to startofday to control this field, however i am needing this date to be changed not on a permanent basis just read only so that anyone who doesnt have a JIRA account can still go my JIRA website and have preloaded dashboards (i think i need about 5) which simply show anything with date in the landline field however for that specific date that they are wanting to see.

Date range would be probably just a month behind till todays date however default to anything with todays date as landline date
